This Week, Part 2 (Jun. 19-21, 2015)

Because of embargoes, a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Eden

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: an ambitious effort, the chronicling of an era through a musical niche, but its scope and structure plunge story and character elements deep in the mix.

[New Today] Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See

Infinitely Polar Bear

Kenji Fujishima @ Slant Magazine

The Overnight

David Bax @ Battleship Pretension

  • Excerpt: Eventually, The Overnight does have something to say about how we codify sex into orientations and preferences and about the moralities we concoct because of that. But then the movie reminds you that it all really comes down to Alex’s insecurity about having a small dick.

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: I haven’t laughed out loud so long and often at any comedy so far this year.

Back to the Jurassic

M Enois Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com

Big Game

Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz

  • Excerpt: Moore is one of the weakest U.S. Presidents ever to grace the big screen, getting driven around the Finnish wilderness and fed by a thirteen year-old boy, not knowing how to use a gun, taking punches without mustering up the strength to fight back, and finally, getting stuffed into an ice box and helicoptered through the forest. What a wimp!

Creep

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Those who enjoyed his second [“The Overnight”], a comedy, will be surprised to see how much of it exists in his first, a found footage horror film. It’s as if Brice followed the same template in different genres and, remarkably, both work on their own merits.

The Face of an Angel

Chris Barsanti @ Film Journal International

  • Excerpt: A filmmaker hired to do a quick true-crime flick about a sordid Amanda Knox-like murder case prevaricates and ultimately gives up, much like the film itself, an unusually wan effort from Michael Winterbottom.

Manglehorn

Chris Barsanti @ Film Journal International

  • Excerpt: Nearly the only good thing about this stultifying David Gordon Green piece about an old jerk played by Al Pacino is the gritty, poetic title, promising a depth that never materializes.
